This is a great redeveopment project. I must admit.. it came out of nowhere. Judging by the pictures, there has been substantial progress on the tower, yet its thread is only now being created. The small render above is also the best render so far.. I think. So if anyone else can find a more high quality render, feel free to post it.

This is a huge tower. I like the double crane action.

It looks different form the SSP diagram which makes me doubt the height given on SSP as well. Do we know the height for this design?

this is one of those mysterious projects... what company is the developer anyways?

It seems strange to me that no developer has been associated with this project yet...

well, since we don't have good renders we can't say if the building is ugly. Depends much on the facade quality I think...

It's a shame they didn't keep with the original design for this tower.
